Jan 12, 2016
Photographers: Readers
We wil stop accepting ballots on April 8, 2016! Mail us yours today to make sure your favorite trucks make it to Diesel Power Challenge 2016.
It’s time for the 12th edition of the Diesel Power Challenge, and you get to decide who competes for the title! Due to competition rules, two-time reigning champion Lavon Miller cannot return for a third win in a row, but that means the readers of Diesel Power get to pick all 10 contestants this year. In the following pages, you’ll find the best Ford, GM, and Ram trucks that were submitted for DPC 2016. As always, drivers will compete in drag racing, trailer towing, sled pulling, and maneuvering through an obstacle course with 10,000 pounds in tow—plus, all the events will be measured for fuel economy.
Thanks to an overwhelming response by Blue Oval owners this year, you’ll get to choose your favorite four Ford trucks, along with three from the General Motors team of Chevrolet/GMC, and three Dodge Rams to battle in this competition. You may only vote for each truck once per paper ballot, so pick your favorites from each brand. Sorry, but no photocopies, photos, faxes, emails, or Snapchats of the original form will be accepted.
